Rays Pitcher Gets Beat Up and Tased, Bro

Tampa Bay reliever Al Reyes had a fun evening. He got sloppy drunk, broke stuff, tried to fight a stranger, and ultimately, got tased be the police. Twice. This is otherwise known simply as an Al Reyes Birthday Party:
↵
↵⇥Thursday was Reyes' 38th birthday. ↵⇥Witnesses told police the incident started around 2:30 a.m. at the Hyde Park Cafe, 1806 W Platt St., when Reyes fell against a ceramic pot inside the bar. Thinking someone had pushed him, police said Reyes began exchanging words with patron Eduardo Mora. ↵⇥Mora then punched Reyes in the face ... Reyes "began to spit blood on the people in the area and began to swing his arms about." ↵⇥
↵⇥
↵⇥Moments later, the officer Tased Reyes, knocking him to the bar floor. Ignoring police commands to stay down, authorities said Reyes got up and was Tased a second time. ↵
↵Well done, Al. We all know it ain't a party 'til someone is spitting up blood and convulsing on the ground from electric shock.
↵
↵In honor of Al's night to remember, we've put together a sloppily edited Al Reyes vs. MC Hammer vs. Florida Student mash-up. Enjoy:
